At level 15, this was my primary weapon.
Still now, at level 40, I have this weapon, although it's now secondary and i am looking for some thing to replace it but it gets the job done.

Just wondering
# Aug 09 2001 at 12:04 AM Rating: Decent
Should i dual wield this or a PGT with my icetooth claws? or maybe with my 7/27 crystallized shadow longsword?

take into account that 8 28 is better than 7 27, and make sure you know what level the proc is, and decide what proc you really want to have... be original... be the character you want to be....

right now, I'm using icetooth's claw and a Shiny brass shield. When I turn 17, i'm getting rid of my shield and going to ask someone to help me kill the ghoul messenger for my Short Sword of Morin. And once i hit the level for my Ebony bladed sword to proc, i'll be using that and my soon to be created Trueshot (i need microservos)...

Either way, i'm saving up for Stormfeather talons... dual-weilding 2 claws is just AWESOME

Just to let ya know, Stormfeather Talons are HORRIBLY expensive, because they are a semi-uncommon drop of a tough-for-its-level Griffon which is a rare spawn.
It's spawn time has been tracked and it is around 18hours in between.

Stormfeather also drops the 1 of the 4 maps needed for the awesome Eyepatch of Plunder.

When i /auctioned to buy one, i could never get a price lower than 1500, and this is on the notorious for it's low prices Xev server. I had 1 offer of 1500pp and 1 offer of 2000pp and another offer of 2500pp when i asked about the sales.

However, i AM dual wielding Icepaw Warclaws and Stormfeather Talons(the +5 to str/dex/agi is great) and it's great, people think i'm using sarnak Eits and Pits, until i open up a huge can of whoopass.

Do what i did, when i was in Iceclad, Stormy was up and yellow, there was a 58monk waiting for the boat, so i asked if he could help me take him down, and sure, he pulled, i snared (1st resisted, 2nd stuck) then Panic animal it, resisted half the time. With the monk's help we took him down in no time at all. He looted the corpse (the deal was he got the map if it dropped) and handed me the claws, and told me he got the map... so happy days for both of us.
Proc Level
# Aug 01 2001 at 7:11 PM Rating: Decent
FYI. I know there is a lot of confusion as to what level you must be for this weapon to proc.

I have this weapon and wield it in my secondary slot because I am a 21st level ranger and expected to have to wait until 25th level to see the effects.


Last night in H.K., fighting the Gnolls, the weapon proc'd. I asked all in my group if they were wielding a Velium weapon and maybe I had misread the text. Nadda. I was the only one and the text did say that I had hit the mob and he had taken Velium shard damage.

I have been wielding this weapon for 1 level and a half and have only seen that one proc BUT it did.

Oh, a 27th lvl warrior, in my group at the time, responded to my inquiry into the issue with a sarcastic: "It procs at 20".

Hope this helps lay the question to rest.
Good cheap weapon
# Jun 16 2001 at 5:11 PM Rating: Decent
Procs at level 25 and does 12 damage. Nice weapon for a low level player, but by the time this weapon procs, it's passed it's prime.
RE: Good cheap weapon
# Jul 26 2001 at 3:38 PM Rating: Decent the time this weapon procs, it's passed it's prime.

ARGH! This is a typical twinkie comment. Not everyone is running around with a Wurmy because they were twinked by their family/friends/guildmates. Some of us WORK for our gear and earn our plat.

IMHO This is an above average weapon and remains serviceable until you reach 29 or 30, by that time you should be able to afford a better primary - that's when I'd move this to the secondary slot. The extra 12 damage from the velium shards gives it a nice kick and the weapon delay isn't bad. Hardly past its prime for a level 25.

I bought this weapon at 16 or 18. Shortly after I got the LoW. At 24 I got my BABS. Didn't use the battle axe much till I hit 25, then just did it when fighting in a full group, with another tank.. and just to keep up my dual wield skills. The reality of it is that by the time it procs, ya probably have acquired better weapons.

And yes ya don't have to be a twink... just be quite entrepenurial... pelts and spider/spiderling silks. Coming from Halas... ya can make a lot of money by just making leather padding and silk swatches..and bone chips.. then sell at EC Tunnel. Easy and quick.

I don't want this thing for my level 11 warrior, and He's not twinked by another character. Every item I have, was purchased in East Commons at tunnel, looted, or bought from vendors. I bought a Blackened Alloy longsword for 100pp, obtained by hunting black bears and selling the hq skins. It's dmg 10 dly 29. Better than this! I will get a PGT for secondary at level 13, since I want the effect more than the extra damage this does.
i want one

my lvl 8 warrior on Veeshan really needs abetter weapon than his tarnished scimtar if someone on that server has one that there willing to part with i have 15pp contact me name: Darkuwa

all velium weapons are under 15pp now they are as common as dirt
# Jun 13 2001 at 1:12 AM Rating: Default
hmm i got lucky and got 2 for 15 pp each :) they dont proc for my lvl 15 yet but i cant wait till they do. and believe me they are way better than my old weapons dual mino axes
#Anonymous, Posted: Jun 12 2001 at 3:16 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) i have no idea how much these are worth, but i bought one off this guy who conned green to my lvl 13 warrior (whos my highest lvl) for only 5pp. I hope i ripped him off bad, cause that makes me feel good. if your a high lvl person with nothing to do, or your gonna quit playing this game, give me your items and money. ( Efreet or Baki ). okay?
#REDACTED, Posted: Jul 08 2001 at 7:21 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) How intellectual you must be. Did you think that up all on your own. If you got it for 5pp good for you, I got mine for free from a nice individual myself. So as for your taking advantage of others well trust me your day is coming after your trust flys away like the wind and you have no friends to help you out and no guild to accept you or boot your **** out the door.

I bought 2 from a merchant
# Jun 09 2001 at 9:24 PM Rating: Decent
I was just in Firiona Vie last night and after selling my stuff to one of the barb merchants(I'm a barb and I can't fit in any other building, plus they're amiably to me). I decided to see what he was selling and he had a velium battle axe so I quickly ran back to the bank and got money and bought it for 67pp. I have better weaps but thye look cool when equiped so I decided to buy one. After purchasing it he still had another one so i quickly ran back to the bank and got another 67pp and bought it so I can duel weild it around newbs hehe. I guess I just got kinda lucky and someone had sold two to that merchant. Well once I can go kill the thing that drops this I'll get a pair for my friend. Good luck to everyone trying to get one because it is a pretty nice midlevel weapon.

134 plat is kind of a high price for these, but if you like the velium weapons, this is one of the better ones.
What you need to know
# Jun 04 2001 at 1:50 AM Rating: Default
These are carried by the guards in Icewell Keep. They may or may not be carried by other mobs in Velious. You do not need Velious expansion to see them, or to use them, but you will need the Velious expansion if you want to go to Velious and kill a mob to get one for yourself.
The only reason they are sold at vendors there is because people kill mobs and sell them... like you can buy bronze weapons from vendors... the vendors don't usually carry those, they're sold there by people who loot the stuff. That is why you can find them in freeport sometimes. People in Velious, usually sell velium weapons instead of carrying them to EC to try to sell, since you get 5-10pp selling to a vendor and they're heavy.
Just like FS weapons in other places.
Good luck finding one... they proc at level 25.
where to buy one
# May 19 2001 at 12:40 PM Rating: Decent
I found a merchant selling one of these in the North Freeport bank along with at least 5 other velium items. I'm not sure if she was trained there or if it is a rare merchant spawn.
# May 18 2001 at 9:08 PM Rating: Default
I'm sorry, maybe I'm just stupid, or new to the game...But What the is a proc and what does it do?
RE: proc?

Proc means it has a spell effect that processes. Goes off (sometimes) when you use the weapon. In this particular case, the effect is 12 points of direct damage (dd) from velium shards to the target, in addition to the damage from the hit.

Where can i find one?

I have currently been looking in EC for one but have had no success. Where is a good place to buy one?
Coldain version?
# May 14 2001 at 4:07 AM Rating: Default
Does anyone know if there is a Coldain version of this weapon?
Coldain velium is store bought only from Thurgadain and does one extra damage and procs from lvl one. I know there ae only some weapons that come in Coldain version and a Coldain one of these would be great.

Proc on!
# Apr 19 2001 at 10:36 PM Rating: Default
I dual wield these and as soon as I hit 25 they started proc'ing like mad! I get between 5 and 10 procs per fight! Awesome weps for dueling.
Velium Battle Axe???
# Apr 17 2001 at 12:17 AM Rating: Default
I have an axe from a friend that reads (exactly) "Velium Battle Axe", but the stats are magic, lore, 2hs, 30dmg, 40dly, war pal rng shd/all, weight 6.3. What is with the axe? It is entitled Velium Battle Axe, but the stats don't match. Any ideas? What would it be worth given the dmg/dly ration? Thanks!
RE: Velium Battle Axe???
# Jul 02 2001 at 8:16 AM Rating: Decent
No, there is a 1HS version and a 2HS version of this weapon, unlike most of the weapons. I beleive that this a good weapon to use until your reach lvl 30. But what do I know??
WS and this
# Apr 16 2001 at 7:52 PM Rating: Default
This combo KICKS ***!!! I dual one of these and a WS in my primary and i kick some major ***-orama. No proc yet but its still an absolutely SICK combo. I love both my WS and my axe and would prolly only get rid of em for lammys.
